Can I sue the judge? Ask the lawyer

Q: The judge in our case has made several wrong decisions, and has made comments about both me and my wife that are dishonest. Can we sue him? -D.C., Torrance Ron Sokol A: Depending on what has been decided or ruled upon, you may be able to appeal. In addition, you may have a basis to seek to disqualify the judge from further hearing your matter (if you can actually show real bias). But suing the judge for actions taken pursuant to his judicial function will almost certainly be defeated by i...

How has the pandemic affected lawyers and the courts? Ask the lawyer

Q: Were attorneys hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic, or did the legal business and the courts continue on pretty much as before? -S.M., San Pedro Ron Sokol A: The pandemic has had a significant impact on the business of law and the operation of the courts. An automobile accident lawyer I know, for example, experienced no downturn in quantity of claims, but is facing an ongoing difficulty: Several cases she had that were soon going to trial were continued, by as much as a year. This can be...

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously during a Tuesday, July 13, meeting to direct county officials to pursue the action plan, which the County CEO’s office and the Anti-Racism, Diversity and Inclusion Initiative released earlier this month, with more details to come later this year on how to transfer the land to the descendants of Willa an...

Are e-bikes subject to any laws? Ask the lawyer

Q: More and more people are riding e-bikes. Is a license required? Any age restrictions? Do basic laws apply? -J.L., Marina Del Rey Ron Sokol A: Under the California Vehicle code, electric bicycles are classified as conventional bicycles. Thus the “rules of the road” apply, but e-bikes are a little different. An e-bike, for example, cannot exceed 750 watts and must not exceed 28 miles per hour on level ground. While a license or registration is not required, e-bikes may only be operated by t...

Can NCAA players start making money off their name? Ask the lawyer

Q: I am not quite sure what to make of the U.S. Supreme Court decision about NCAA athletes. Can they now freely make money while amateurs in college? -G.R., Inglewood Ron Sokol A: The NCAA long prohibited college athletes from accepting any outside money. The justification was to preserve “amateurism” (in other words, college athletes are not professionals so they do not need to be compensated). Instead, stipends and scholarships would suffice. At the same time, however, colleges often have ...

But when it came time to get vaccinated, many of the 400 employees at AMS Fulfillment were resistant for various reasons, Pelaez said. Respiratory therapist Natalie Morales administer...

Am I required to neuter my dog? Ask the lawyer

Q: We have recently gotten a very cute puppy. Are we required to neuter her at some point? -B.H., Los Angeles Ron Sokol A: Los Angeles has what is considered to be a very tough spay/neuter law. Once your puppy is at least 4 months of age, he or she must be neutered.

How volunteering at Dodger Stadium during COVID-19 influenced author’s book on Los Angeles

One might assume that Rosecrans Baldwin, author of “Paris, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” and “The Last Kid Left,” is L.A. born-and-raised, given that he shares his first name with the street that runs from Manhattan Beach to Fullerton. He’s not. Baldwin, who was born in Chicago and raised primarily in Connecticut, had only visited the city a handful of times before moving here more than six years ago. “I always choose George as my Starbucks name, because Rosecrans is just asking for pe...

Why are there antitrust cases against Google? Ask the lawyer

Kavon Ward will step onto Bruce’s Beach Park later this week for a celebration. A celebration of Juneteenth, of Black history and Black culture. Of the gains, though incomplete, those fighting against systemic racism have made in the 365 days since Ward co-hosted the inaugural Juneteenth celebration at the Manhattan Beach park. And of the history that could soon be made. A year ago this Saturday, June 19, when Ward and about 50 others gathered at Bruce’s Beach Park to commemorate the day in 1865...

Pandemic restrictions will largely vanish this week. Politics? Or science?

At the stroke of midnight on June 15, the spell will break. Masks can fall. Churches and gyms and movie theaters can fill up. We’ll finally be able to tell a smile from a scowl, and sales of lip balm — and, perhaps, breath mints — will surely rise. As California stands on the precipice of normalcy after more than a year of pandemic drama and trauma, some worry. Are we really ready? Is the state that valiantly vowed to follow the science really following the science? Juliana Ibaraki, a junior ...

Can my employer require me to get a COVID-19 vaccine? Ask the lawyer

Q: We hope that the COVID-19 vaccines are effective and safe. What if one of the vaccines, Moderna or Pfizer, really harms someone, not just a 24 hour nausea, fever or head ache, but something worse (blindness, loss of motor function, or death) — can you sue the company? -W.B., Lomita Ron Sokol A: Before I answer, it’s important to note that both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines have been found to be safe — to an unparalleled degree, some scientists say. While no is 100% safe, because each pe...

How to win a bidding war: New homeowners share their strategies

Why is a secondary search of an airline passenger so often OK? Ask the lawyer
